Inside Airbnb dataset

Analysis of Airbnb data

Thanks to Jewel Loree from Tableau Public, I found a dataset about Airbnb. The timing was excellent because I had to choose an Airbnb accomodation for a training in Luxembourg a few weeks ago. When I discovered the website Inside Airbnb, I was suprised to find a lot of CSV files concerning several cities around the world. As a French, I chose to start my analysis with Paris but actually, I downloaded all the files to build the visualisation below.

The visualisation is built in 2 parts. The first part called "Global view" try to present the data from 10 cities with a map and a radar graph. The map is available in two types: by neighbourhood and by hexbin. To draw hexbin, I used the method describe by The Last Data Bender wich allow to use polygon and no shape (I think it is more flexible and beautiful). The second part is about hosts. I chose to show how the accomodations are distributed by hosts and by city. In this part, each accomodation is located on a map and the Airbnb URL is available.

Don't hesitate to leave a message or a note about this work.
